Vic Pierce Jones

tea room
With deep sadness we advise the passing of Vic,
a good friend of the H.I.H.S. who reported
on our Shows for the Hayling Islander,
always with great descriptive flowery accounts.

An excellent Island Councillor for many years,
and indeed served as Mayor.

The cremation will be at The Oaks, Bartons Road, Havant
at 4.00 pm Wednesday the 30th May, after the wake
will be held at the Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth.

Our sincere thoughts go to his wife Margaret.

Tea Room At Spring Show

Thanks again, June Kemp
